UNDERSTANDING THE GIANT MONDO-BIG BRUSHES PALETTE

If you're freaked out by all the sliders, menus, buttons, and clutter in the new expanded (read incredibly huge behemoth) Brushes palette, I have a tip that will help you to understand how it works so that it will immediately feel more friendly and familiar. Here it is: It works much the same way as the Layer Styles dialog. That's right. If you look at the Layer Styles dialog, the menu on the left side of it looks, and works, pretty much like the left-side menu in the expanded Brushes palette. For example, in the Layer Styles dialog, to add an effect, you click on the checkbox, but to edit that effect's options, you click on its name. This is the same in the Brushes palette. To add an effect to your current brush, click on the checkbox beside the effect. To edit that effect, click directly on the effect's name, and its options appear.
